Happy September to everyone.  This past week was awesome and to find out that BYU won it got even better!  On Saturday night, the secretary of the mission called us and said that he was just informed that BYU had won the game on a hail mary pass in the last second.  So I found out just about right after it happened haha.  I thought he was going to tell me something important but nope haha, just that BYU had won the game.  Well, that is important, but important mission-wise.  

First story, ok so this week we had a list of people that we really just wanted to focus on.  One of them is  _____ .  So she is going to get baptized this Saturday.  I don't remember if I told you all about her last week but her papers were lost and she went less active.  But her son got back from a missin and she now wants to get baptized!  So that is pretty cool for us.  We were focusing on her and her sister-in-law is a member also, but her daughter no.  And her sister-in-law came up to us on Sunday and said, "Elders, I want you to baptize my daughter."  So we obviously replied that we were happy to do that haha.  So this saturday it looks like we are going to have two baptisms!  

Also, this week, we are going to possibly have 5 reactivations.  That is when someone is less active, but then we find them, they start going to church and then we teach them all the lessons and they have an interview with the bishop.  This week we are possibly going to have 5 of those!  So hopefully that all goes well.  

On Wednesday we had a nice surprise.  Well, Tuesday night.  The zone leaders called on Tuesday night and said that we were going to go to the temple the next day.  So it was kind of a bummer because we had to cancel all of our appointments but it was cool because we got to go to the temple!  It was so nice to be able to go to the temple.  Seriously every single time we go in it is so peaceful.  I love it.  Because once again, Lima is so busy and there is no silence ever so when we have the opportunity to go to the temple it is incredible.  I always think of the primary song I love to see the temple.  Because here you are in a bus on a road and BAM the temple just kind of pops up out of nowhere.  

That is about it from this week.   I hope that you all have a wonderful week and that all goes well.  I love you!
